Well put, I agree very much. I really did not know the Stereogum community held such venom for Amanda Palmer. But I’m glad, it shows how much of a true punk she is.
Amanda Palmer is a great artist and a true genius. Look at how she can get such a reaction with just a poem. She is punk as fuck, and a lot of these critics cannot handle her artistry.
I think with this piece, she is making an attempt to humanize Dzhokhar by relating his feelings of confusion and fear with our own in a more day to day basis. Some of y’all seem to think that this means she is saying that it is somehow justified that he killed people, but I don’t see this at all.
I think this is a powerful, legitimate piece.
I think Stevie Wonder was just talking about figuring out your sexuality. Some people aren’t sure of their sexuality, and it takes them years of experiences with men and women to really find out where they sit.
Because a lot of Frank’s music vividly talks about sex and love with women, it’s probably true that Frank Ocean is now basically straight. Frank only said that his first lover was a man, not that he prefers men in general. That means that, at some point in Frank’s life, he was willing to entertain the notion that he could be gay. Frank played both sides of the field.
To me, it seems like Stevie is saying that Frank was at one point a ‘confused’ gay person. He explicitly states that not all gay people are like this. Am I wrong?
I’m having trouble seeing how Mascis’ voice is anything like Sly Stone’s…
Not enough black musicians on this list
Why no talk of Dry the River!? They have awesome songwriting and harmonies, great energy, a real standout act
How is he racist? Is there any way to talk about racism without being called a racist?
I think Adele has infinitely more artistic credibility than Taylor Swift. I’m a huge Kanye fan, but at the same time, I don’t think Taylor Swift is a hack or anything. She writes catchy pop songs, which is not an all an easy thing to do.
Still, people get really bitter over her very existence, which says a lot more about them than it does about her. But I doubt Kanye is gonna act up in any predictable way.
If you had a TV show, you’d probably think pretty highly of yourself too :p
You seem like a really miserable guy, I don’t understand what gives you any enjoyment out of life.
unless there are two?
The Greek Theatre is in Berkeley, not Los Angeles…
